Herbalife Blogger Florida: I'm Feeling Fruity

Exotic Fruit To Try
Yes, I'm talking about fruit! 

One thing I love about all of the farmers markets popping up in Florida is the opportunity to try different fruits. It's funny how you don't consider each country has its own distinct produce. My best friend and love lives in the UK and when he was here last month it was funny to hear him say: ''What's that!'' as we walked from isle to isle. 

''It's a yam!'' 

Funny, hey. The first time he saw a mango tree he looked on in awe. I guess Brits are used to apples and pears (their funny rhyming slang for up the stairs...lol). In a time when obesity is a problem we all need to consider what is a healthy option to fast food, sugary drinks and all that stuff (you know) you should eat in moderation. 

There are so many different kinds of fruit – some weird and wonderful.

I must admit, I love strawberries. Yummy! No cream. Just keep them natural, especially if you can pick your own. Well, ideally grown locally, hey. What else do I like: Peaches, passion fruit, kiwi fruit, apples, bananas, grapes... The list goes on. 

Nowadays there is a huge selection including exotic fruits. Here are a few of my favourites. 

Why Eat Fruit & Vegetables? 

You don't need to ask a scientists to know that eating fruits (exotic or not) is good for you. Most fruits are naturally low in fats, sodium and calories. Also, they have no cholesterol. I'm feeling healthier just talking about this! Fruits are an important source of nutrients such as potassium, fiber, vitamin C and folate (folic acid which helps the body build new cells). Eating fruit & vegetables may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes.

So what about those exotic fruit! 


These unusual looking fruit are about the size of a walnut hidden in a leathery, spiky red shell. To be honest, you could walk straight past them thinking ''they look a bit strange'' but stop, turn around and give them a try. Did you know fresh lychees grow in Central and Southern America? Guess what, they even grow in Florida. The lychees have a unique taste. Just peel the fruit, squeeze, and reveal the white inner fruitiness. Not only do they have lots of vitamin C, they contain B-complex vitamins, plus potassium and copper. 

Dragon Fruit

This is an exotic-looking fruit if I have ever seen one. Cut one in half and the pink outer flesh and green leaves reveals a white fruit with specs of black. It reminds me of milk infused with a vanilla pod. It's grown locally in Florida, California and Hawaii. It tastes a bit like watermelon, kiwi and pear. A kind of three-in-one fruit if you like! Most people eat it raw and chilled. However, it can be grilled, too. It contains vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and lycopene (a powerful antioxidant). 

Star Fruit

It looks like its shape – a star. The star fruit has an unusual sweet and sour flavour. When ripe, it is a yellow colour with flecks of green down the ribbed shape. It has a complex taste which hints of pineapple, lemon, apple and plum. [I said it was unique]. You can enjoy a slice or eat the whole fruit. It is versatile as it can be stewed, made into a yummy jam or (somehow) even sherbet. Star fruit has powerful antioxidants including vitamin C and B-complex vitamins. 


Another home-grown fruit from Florida and further afield. It resembles a small orange and a very dinky size. Ideal to put one or two in your pocket when exercising. A fruity burst of zestiness (yes, I have a way with words). They have a tangy but sweet taste. Did you know, you can even eat the peel. Lots of fibre in the skin. It has a delightful smell because of the essential oils. Its a great source of vitamin B, oodles of vitamin C. In addition, it has a small amount of calcium. 


To be honest I had never heard of this ''Feijoooa'' or ''surprise surprise'' know how to pronounce it. This green oval-shaped fruit is grown in South America and New Zealand. Whether you will see them for sale in Florida I'm not sure as they don't have a very long shelf live. Even in the fridge they only last a couple of days. However, their yummy flesh is something to savour. 


This is one fruit you may not be too keen to taste. Why? Well, it smells of stinky socks. Some people say it smells of gasoline! Bizarre. Not the most appetizing thought, hey. Hold your nose and drive right in. In addition, its thorny texture makes it difficult to hold. Inside the fruit, contain five pods filled with yellow/red pulp which has a caramel taste or something like crème brulee. It is often used as a popular ingredient for desserts. It has an abundance of vitamin C, the B-complex group, lots of potassium, tryptophan and amino acid.

So how does the Herbalife Meal Plan work?

It's so simple. 

So what is a typical day!

In addition, you receive my expert advice which is personalised to your individual needs. This includes how much protein to add to your Herbalife protein shakes. Plus, all the motivation you will ever need from your Palm Beach Coach (me!).

How Does the Herbalife Diet Work?    

The daily meal plan consists of 3 elements.

1) Eat your main meal as normal (easy!)

That's right. Enjoy your main meal with family or friends. 

2) Supplements

It is recommended that you add Herbalife supplements 3 times a day to your meals which helps your general health & speeds up metabolism. 

I suggest Formula 2 multivitamins, Green Tea (Thermo Beverage), if doing exercise then you should take H3O Isotonic Drink 

Herbalife Protein Shake Recipe

3) Replace Two Meal With Herbalife Shakes 

The best meals to replace our breakfast and lunch (but it's your call). Simply replace 2 meals with a Herbalife Protein Shake. They come in a range of flavours, which taste delicious. Read this article: My Favourite Top 10 Shake Flavours

It's very simple - just unpack the box and follow the instruction and you're on the road to weight loss. 

Starting Your Daily Plan:

1) A Formula 1 Shake  

Start the day with a delicious shake 

Simply blend 2 tablespoons of Formula 1 drink (adding protein powder). You may mix it will water (ice), skimmed milk, soy milk or fruit juice.

2) Formula 2 Tablets 

Take multivitamins or mineral tablets to boost your health and metabolism.

Why Start Breakfast with a Herbalife Protein Shake?

Because Herbalife nutrition shakes combine complex carbohydrates and lean protein means you don't feel hungry or the need to snack.

The science part: Did you know that eating refined sugar like rice, pasta, fruit juice, white potatoes etc stop hunger pangs for as little as 10 minutes. While fruit, vegetables, and whole grains last up to 1 hour. Eating chicken, fish and egg white helps control hunger for 2 - 3 hours. 

What about Herbalife protein shakes? ''They help control hunger pangs for 3+ hours.''

Lunch Time: ''Shake Time''

1) Formula 1 Shake  

Make another yummy shake. There are lots of flavours and you can even add a banana to it too if you wish. 

2) Formula 2 Tablets

Take 1 of your multivitamins and mineral tablets. This will help boost your energy levels and improve metabolism which helps you burn calories faster. 

Herbalife Protein Bars

Snacks You Can Eat Between Meals

Yes, you can snack it's ok.  

By taking your Herbalife protein shakes you shouldn't feel any hunger pangs for 3+ hours. However, if you have got into the habit of snacking then we have the answer. A range of snacks which help. These low glycemic index products should help prevent you from feeling hungry. 

Add a box of Protein Bars to your plan. (Click to see them here

They come in three scrumptious flavours: Vanilla almond, chocolate peanut & citrus lemon.

Finish The Day With Your Main Meal 

Simply eat your normal family meal without counting calories. That's the beauty of Herbalife that you don't need to even think you are on a diet. You simply have your 2 shakes, vitamins, minerals, and bars if you so wish...

Herbalife Blogger: No Calorie Counting With Herbalife's Diet Plan

Herbalife Blogger: No Hunger Pangs Here
The Herbalife diet is very simple to follow. 

It is based on 30 years of success. 

It helps you tackle 4 common obstacles to weight loss:

Have you tried to diet, and found you suffered these problems?

1) The loss of good nutrition
2) Loss of energy
3) Lower metabolism 
4) Cravings for snacks

So many modern diets are designed to cut back calories but ignore long term health. What about vitamins, minerals, all the nutrients...

Herbalife is different because it actually feeds your body correctly. 

You don't feel hungry and your body isn't starved. 

Did you know that most people are overweight because of nutritional deficiencies?  That's why you may crave sugar and fatty food. 

Most diets leave you with hunger pangs which leads to dieters cheating or giving up because it becomes too difficult. 

Herbalife protein shakes, vitamins, boosters and snacks help you lose weight by keeping your body healthy and avoiding the hunger pangs which often prove so destructive to your good intentions. 

This means Herbalife helps you achieve your goals. 

How Can I Boost My Energy Level On A Diet?

So often dieters opt for sugary snacks such as chocolate, biscuits or crisps. These hinder the fat burning process which, in turn, decreases energy levels so you just don't feel yourself. 

In effect, your body is continuously searching for similar snacks to keep your energy levels high. 

Herbalife products are designed to offer long lasting energy so your feel great in your own body and not hungering for snacks. 

The Speed You Burn Calories

This has a lot to do with your metabolism. Basically, the higher your metabolism the faster your lose weight. Herbalife products help improve your metabolism so you burn calories efficiently. They help your body and muscles work to their best. 

The Dieter's Ruin: Craving Snacks

I am sure we can all associate with the craving for snacks when dieting. In fact, as soon as you start to diet all those things you shouldn't eat seem all the more tempting. However, snacking is the biggest downfall. It doesn't take much to ruin all your hard work. When you consider the calories in one chocolate biscuit it speaks for itself. 

Herbalife products contain higher protein which stops you feeling hungry. Also, a low glycemic index takes away the sugar rush feeling and helps you stop snacking.

Herbalife products achieve what is known as Cellular Nutrition. This is different to nutritional supplements you may take. Consuming food and adding supplements doesn't always get fully digested by the body. 

Cellular Nutrition makes use of 6000 years of botanical history combining herbs with the latest technology by cleansing and detoxifying cells so they work efficiently and can be fully nourished. Healthy, nourished, cells grow, repair, and perform as the body intended. This means we feel better and look better. Basically, you lose weight in a healthy way.

The Herbalife Diet is as simple as  1,2,3...

1) Eat your main meal as normal

2) Take 2 Herbalife Protein Shakes per day - simply replacing two meals a day. 

3) 3 Times a day - take the natural herbal based supplements to boost your general health.

Palm Beach Coach
I know what you are thinking: How does a Herbalife diet actually work? 

There are 3 key elements:

1) The Herbalife meal replacement shakes

What about the shakes...

It's very simple. 

1) Replace two meals with Herbalife shakes (there are lots of yummy flavours)
2) Drink plenty of water throughout the day
3) Eat your main meal as normal

See, said it was simple. 

The shakes work so well because they are calorie controlled, easy to prepare and taste great. 

The shakes contain complex carbohydrates with lean protein and nutrients your body needs. 

Did you know there are 3 Herbalife shakes?

Formula 1 - (most popular shakes)
Free From Shake - (gluten, dairy and soy free)
Formula 1 Sport - (Ideal before exercise or sport) 

The Formula 1 shake is the most popular, but all three taste great. They take seconds to blend. I use water with mine (and ice), but you can use milk, soy milk or juice.


Add Protein

This helps prevent hunger between meals, building muscle and general health. 

There are 2 ways to add protein to your shake:

Protein Powder - Simply add to your shake

Protein Drink Mix - Ideal if blending with water 


You may wish to have snacks, a booster or vitamins. 

Protein snacks - such as bars, beans and soup are designed to go with your diet

Herbalife Blogger: Branding Your Herbalife Business

Herbalife Blogger - Florida
Juggling work commitments and building my Herbalife business can be a challenge. However, the flexibility of being a Herbalife Distributor for West Palm Beach, Florida, has given me so many opportunities you wouldn't believe. I've met people who have literally changed my life, prospects and helped me reach many of my ambitions. 

A Game Changer

I know a lot of Herbalife Distributors and it is brilliant to work in an industry which is transforming others lives through healthy nutrition. The tools I have learned from Herbalife make me appreciate this business. The company's focus on nutrition and fitness. The stories of personal development and transformation made me realise how important this knowledge is for my clients. 

I have created a brand with Palm Beach Coach through a lot of hard work. 

Let the World Know Who You Are

Networking has been crucial to my business. I am a natural communicator and love learning about others. It is so important to be part of the community. Without question, discipline has been the key aspect of my success. Attending fitness or wellness networking events is a great way to find new clients. The more people recognise you the easier it is to make contacts. My specific interest is wellness and empowerment. How can I inspire someone to be fit, healthy and happier.


For anyone starting their own business I would say follow your heart, take calculated risks but mostly have fun. It is so important to enjoy what you are doing and it really shines brightly. Believe in yourself- be unstoppable.

Building a Business - But Putting Family First

It's never easy balancing business and family.

Not enough hours in the day.

You Have Options

Working takes time but being a Herbalife Distributor works because it's flexible hours. It is a good reason to be inspired - working on your terms. 

Follow Your Own Path 

It is almost expected that you work the 9 to 5 but it really doesn't have to be that way. The fear of not following the 9 to 5 tradition. There is no flexibility with the traditional routine that can often feel like a ball and chain around your leg. True, working for yourself can get you out of your comfort zone but it helps motivate and work on your terms. 

Believe In What You Do

It is great to work with new clients and see the benefits they gain from Herbalife products. It doesn't take long for them to see results. Good nutrition, regular exercise and a supportive coach bring so much positivity to your life. It's why I always have a smile on my face. I am happy with my ''work'' and love to help clients transform their lives. Herbalife coaching isn't simply about selling it is having an emotional connection and achieving results.  

Let People Know What You Do

The reason I started this blog, and my new, exciting, website www.palmbeachcoach.com is to tell the world what I do and how much it motivates me. We use social media to get the message out there: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google +. It's just the start of a big media presence which is great news. It gives customers the opportunity to ask any questions about coaching, products, exercises whatever you need to know. Feel free to contact me at Marlene@palmbeachcoach.com 

Being Thankful

Life is good. I have a wonderful family and two exceptional children I am so proud. I truly value the lifestyle that Herbalife has allowed me. True, it is hard work, but it allows me to make time for all those special moments with family and friends. It makes me value life and the people I share each day. It is extra special to know that I am helping others transform their lives through good nutrition. 

I am proud of my success.
